Refreshing Policies

When a policy file is changed (such as adding, deleting an entry, adding/deleting/modifying a statement), the information in the policy database does not change until the policy is refreshed. The user must refresh the policy so that the latest copy of policy is used. When the policy is refreshed, the new policy file is read, processed, and stored in the server database.

Any clients that use the policy are updated.

To take advantage of Smart Refresh, disable access-list refresh blackholing.
